100 and 101

Can someone tell me how it has gotten to be the end of February? How have I been the queen of my own home {sub-queen- Pepsi comes first} for almost 8 months? What craziness is this that this is my 100th post??

Its amazing what can happen in just 100 electronic moments in time- I'm now a married old woman with a house, a new baby {dogs count, right?} and a growing obsession with domestic-y craft projects {that isn't to say I'm any Martha Stewart, but I can at least make napkins now}.

In honor of my 100th internet ponder-post, I thought I'd share the progress I've made on my 101 in 1001 goals. Some of the goals have changed since I started, but the concept is still the same, and I feel like I'm making good headway and, in the progress, improving myself as a person. Always a good feeling. The weekly and monthly goals have been harder to keep up with than I imagined- between work and... work :) sometimes I just don't have excess energy. However- I'm finding that having these goals does make me get up off the couch (and away from the computer)- sweet!

1. Run at least 2x a week every week for the entire 1001 days. {11/143}
2. Clean my desk off every week. {13/143}
3. Play with the ponies at least 2x per week. {13/143}
4. Photograph at least one dinner per week. {13/143}
5. Make a list of weekly goals and actually finish all of them. {12/143}
6. Put away laundry the day it is washed, not later in the week. {13/143}

12. Bake at least 2x a month. {3/33}
15. Spend at least 2 nights a month completely away from the computer, and vacations don’t count. {3/33}
16. Make at least 5 blog posts a month- 1 should actually have ‘real’ content. {3/33}
17. Sew at least once a month. {3/33} (I've hemmed pants, made a wallet {failure} and made napkins {not a failure})
18. Find at least 2 reasons a month to get all dressed up and go out. {3/33}
19. Relax with a bubble bath, some wine and a good book 1x a month. {3/33} -haven't gotten the wine yet, but the bath and the book have been great!
